Graduation/Commencement Participation Requirements haveChanged!
22.01Graduation Requirements.
Students are required to earn twenty five (25) creditsin order to graduate. Specific graduation requirements for students in KanawhaCounty Schools are outlined in the Senior Course Description Handbook that ispublished annually for students and parents. All graduation requirements will be inaccordance with West Virginia Board of Education Policy 2510.In the past it has been Kanawha County Schools policy to permit students who werewithin one credit or less of meeting graduation requirements to participate in the annualgraduation/commencement activities hosted by the school.Beginning with the 2009 - 2010 school year, participation in the annualgraduation/commencement activities will include
only those students who haveaccumulated the 25 credits in the requisite areas specified by the Kanawha CountyBoard of Education.
All students are encouraged to ensure that they meet graduation requirements as soon aspossible through meeting with their respective counselors. We do not wish to findourselves in the unenviable position of having to tell a student and their parent orguardian that they will not be permitted to participate in the annualgraduation/commencement activities of Capital High School, after all appropriatepreparations and arrangements had been made by the student.
A Message to Our Commencement Audience
(Graduation/Commencement May 21, 2012 - 7:30 PM
Charleston Civic Center Coliseum)
The graduation/commencement ceremony is considered a rite of passage whereina generation of young people is publicly certified to be eligible to move on to take theirrightful place in society as adults. At Capital High School, we take great pride in thiscertification ceremony. We are so serious about the graduation/commencementceremony that our faculty and staff precede the graduates as they march into the arena.They then are seated along-side the senior class giving visible endorsement to theircertification. Certainly, graduation/commencement is an excitement-filled occasion forgraduates and their families
and well, it should be. Graduation/commencement is themost important culminating event in the public school career of the student. It is a
significant milestone that has been achieved by the student as each approaches the stageto receive his or her diploma.Graduation/commencement should be a stately, dignified, regal event that issteeped in splendor, pomp, and circumstance. It should be an occasion that has theair/atmosphere of a coronation wherein one is about to be crowned or one is ascending tosit on a throne!
An air horn, confetti, placards and signs have no place at agraduation/commencement ceremony! Likewise, excessively loud, boisterous yellingand cheering has no place at the graduation/commencement ceremony either!
 We ask that as you attend this ceremony that you imagine that it is being held inyour Mosque, Synagogue, Temple, Church or Cathedral and not the Charleston CivicCenter Coliseum. We are confident that if you conduct yourself accordingly then, andonly then, will we all be able to enjoy the occasion to the fullest!The Capital High School Administration, Faculty, Staff and Student Body
